I like to make clear that in the above scenario the station asking to be
spotted should be immediately placed in the Single Operator Assisted
The general rules for HF contest are clear:
General Rules for ARRL Contests on bands below 30 MHz (HF)
2.1.Single Operator: One person performs all transmitting, receiving,
spotting, and logging functions as well as equipment and antenna
2.1.1.Use of spotting assistance or nets (operating arrangements involving
other individuals, DX-alerting nets, packet, Internet, etc) is not
from the rules it is clear that:
A.- The use of the cluster is not permitted to Single Operators.
B.- The use of spotting assistance is not permitted to Single Operators.
By asking some one to spot me I will be asking for spotting assistance and
that will automatically place me in the Single Operator Assisted category,
and using the DX Cluster will have the same result, a change in category
from Single Operator to Single Operator Assisted.

PS: I notice alot of stations ask the statsions they work to spot them over
and over I guess that really ought to be considered self spotting as well,
So apparentaly not your self , not a friend, or even some one you work
should spot you!? In that case why allow spotting at all!!?? maybe that
would make the the socialistic , "nothing better to do doers", P&Mers
